    More Vista LAN file sharing problems

    We have several PCs running with Windows XP on our Office Network. All systems are on same workgroup and able to see each other and can transfer files as well. Recently I bought a new HP computer with Vista Ultimate. Connect the same on Network and other PCs can see it as well on the network. But the problem is neither it can pull any files from other systems, nor it allows other systems to pull files off from this computer.

    I am able to move the file to any directory including the public directory but can't move it off the vista machine. Using an XP machine on the LAN I can see the shared directories and files but can't pull anything off the vista machine. It just refuses to transfer. I checked Firewalls on all systems, it is set properly with permission to allow file transfer. I haven’t installed any third party firewalls.

    Is there anyone who can help me to get rid of this annoying Vista problem? I think I was happy with XP itself.

    Hello DRITAAN, First create identical user accounts and passwords on all machines. Leave the lan as Private. Then create shares accordingly. It should work fine. If you face any problem now, reply back with the results.
